Hello all,

I recently purchased a used A99. I have used an Aps C Sony for years with a nice collection of Minolta glass. I came to love a David Busch guide book for my aps-c sony.
However, the cheapest David Busch guide book for the original A99 is selling for $300 used.
Will users of the A99 or more recent versions of the same camera, please tell me if I could do just as well with a book for the A99II vs. the original A99?

Thanks in advance.

Frankie Lee

Gary L. Friedman's guides have a good reputation and might be another option.

It might be nice to tell you that, but it just wouldn't be true.

There is the 245 page A99 Handbook in PDF form. No charge:

I have a very beat up set of Friedman's A99 books. Send me your address and I will mail to you.
